Coming together to support NJIT students during the COVID-19 pandemic.

As we face the many challenges of the weeks, and months ahead, we are sure of one thing at NJIT and that is: Highlanders care for each other, our loved ones, our communities, and our world. Wherever you live, all Highlanders share in the spirit of caring, and as a university community, we have the opportunity to show it with messages of kindness, some reassuring words, or as a gift that will have an immediate impact. 

A gift to the Highlander Student Emergency Fund will assist students facing immediate financial hardships as a result of the pandemic. Your donation will support those NJIT students having been affected by the burden of COVID-19.  

Through this fund, NJIT will be making emergency grants available to assist students who are experiencing financial difficulty directly related due to COVID-19 and COVID-19 response measures. Your support will alleviate the short-term financial needs of students at NJIT.

Visit njit.edu for university updates and alternate ways of offering support to NJIT.

Where will the money go? 

Where your donation will have an impact: 

    • Technology and connectivity needs related to distance learning 

    • Housing/Rent/Utilities 

    • Food/Groceries 

    • Medical/Dental bills  

    • Other emergency or unforeseen circumstances 

Generous donors like you will assist in sustaining the Highlander Student Emergency Fund, as the grants awarded need not be repaid. To date, more than 500 students have received grants totaling more than 500 students have received grants totaling more than $235,000!

Thank you for supporting NJIT's students, and for making sure that they have the necessary resources needed to succeed, and continue to be safe and well. #highlandernation 

Help us succeed!

  • We need as many people as possible to be talking about your project. Everywhere you can think of!
  • Here's an example of the type of thing you might say, to give you some inspiration: "Please share this project with anyone you think would support us, on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, by email, telephone, in a chat over the fence or on your blog."
  • In fact, share this with everyone you know as we think it's a great initiative, and the more people who know about it, the more likely we are to make this be a tremendous success in support of NJIT students.

100% of the funds raised through this platform will be credited to this student-led project!
